by | Dec 24, 2023 | Study Club/Webinars

Webinar Highlights:

Anxiety among dental patients accounts for a significant number of cancellations and no shows. Medications to manage this anxiety have side effects and may interact with medications or supplements the patient is currently prescribed. Likewise, pain during recovery from dental procedures are currently often managed with medications that can be addictive or have significant side effects. There is a non-medication option that is proven as safe and effective in managing dental anxiety and pain. Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) and Microcurrent Electrical Therapy (MET) are non-invasive neuromodulation technologies that can quickly, safely, and effectively alleviate anxiety and pain in your patients. This presentation will explore the protocols, the mechanism of action, and the science behind this technology.
